L3 Technologies‘ Wescam business unit has received $300 million in total year-to-date orders to deliver electro-optical/infrared products and in-service support to military and law enforcement customers.

The company said Thursday the collective contracts for Wescam’s MX-Series EO/IR platforms reflect an increased demand for imaging products used on unmanned aircraft systems.

Jeff Miller, president of L3’s sensor systems business, said the company aims to provide support infrastructure designed to help customers maintain MX systems throughout the product’s life cycle.

Wescam received orders for more than 60 EO/IR units for deployment in six countries aboard six different UAS.

The EO/IR systems are designed to aid surveillance and targeting operations.
